    To all SOLIDWORKS users – you are going to be happy about this. SOLIDWORKS 2016 introduces a new rendering engine called SOLIDWORKS Visualise.

    Here is something you need to know about this new rendering engine:

    1. Formerly known as Bunkspeed
    2. SOLIDWORKS Visualise is available with SOLIDWORKS Professional and SOLIDWORKS Premium, as long as the license is under subscription.
    3. SOLIDWORKS Visualise works as a standalone license – it is able to render on another computer while you work on SOLIDWORKS on your computer.
    4. There will be free tutorials, appearances, materials and how-to available on their website here.

    Now the question to be asked is, what is the difference between SOLIDWORKS PhotoView 360 and SOLIDWORKS Visualize? Well here are a couple of pointers:

    SOLIDWORKS Visualize is not a replacement for PhotoView 360, but a complimentary tool that delivers more of what the SOLIDWORKS community has been asking for in visualization.

    • PhotoView 360 is best for designs that are continuously undergoing changes. The direct link and bidirectional updates optimize rendering of work that is still in progress. As for SOLIDWORKS Visualise, any changes in the CAD model is not instantly reflected, you need to continuously import the models that you want to render
    • SOLIDWORKS Visualize picks up where PhotoView 360 leaves off, by introducing an environment that is more similar to photography versus technical rendering with a focus on 3D data. Because results are indistinguishable from photos, they can be used directly for marketing or other areas where physical prototypes don’t exist or carry too much cost.

    So what kind of quality can you expect from SOLIDWORKS Visualise? Well have a look at the samples below:

    SOLIDWORKS Visualise can also render moving animations. Check out this videos:
